Shelton’s “Lucky Links with 2XPOWER” Winner Claims $50,000 Top Prize
David Victoria of Shelton told Lottery officials that he was “pretty ecstatic” when his favorite “Play3” numbers were recently drawn and he won a $41.50 prize. That moment of jubilation, however, was easily eclipsed when he then scanned his “Lucky Links with 2XPOWER
” draw ticket in the ticket checker and realized he won the game’s $50,000 top prize.
“I scanned my [Lucky Links] ticket and saw $50,000 and thought, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe it!”
The winning Lucky Links Night numbers on November 1 were 5 - 8 - 10 - 11 - 19 - 20 - 21 - 22. The “Quick Pick” numbers on Victoria’s “play grid” were a perfect match to the winning numbers drawn, which created 8 winning numbers for the game’s $50,000 top prize.
Where to spend the prize money was a quick and easy decision for Victoria. “We’ve got three kids in college right now, so this is going straight towards paying tuition.”
Lucky Link’s $50,000 top prize has been won a total of 6 times since the new game began in April.
Victoria purchased his top prize winning Lucky Links ticket at Monroe Food Mart, located at 487 Monroe Turnpike in Monroe. Monroe Food Mart will receive a $500 bonus check from the CT Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
